Terror Trifecta

Hey, while poking around the t00bz, I found something season-appropriate which touches on several of my interests. I've never seen Once Upon a Midnight Scary, but it is narrated by Vincent Price, the second part of the anthology is a truncated (I kill me!) version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and the third part is an adaptation of The House with a Clock in its Walls by Bastard fave John Bellairs. I can't vouch for the entertainment value of the show, but it contains elements which pique my interest:

While I've written pretty extensively on Bellairs' The Face in the Frost, I haven't written about The House with a Clock in its Walls- I may have to put up a review of the book for another weekend.

In the interest of full disclosure, I composed this post last night.

Well, to be fair I didn't read it until tomorrow.

Remember, no matter when they invent time travel, once it's invented it will ALWAYS have existed...

Lewis Barnavelt moves to the (fictional) town of New Zebedee which is NOT New Zealand, sure. Thieving authors!!!

My favorite damn time of year, and I even have Halloween off, so I can do some real psychological damage to teh kidlets. Srsly - scare them to peeing, and then reward with candy? WTF kind of reinforcement is that?
